Our production space is located next to a tiny, lovely, but busy farm. Every now and then on the farm, as if going on a break, the bustle dies down, the dust settles and this is when the magic happens.

Fragrant floral scents gently pour into our studio - and if you happen to fall for this charm and look up from your work, you'll feel the silence and notice that everything around seems blurred. But in the distance, and defying the blur, a swaying wind effortlessly brings to life the colors of the farm. This was the inspiration for the vibrant color on these spoons - paint dipped in:

Lavender- the color of a Jacaranda in full bloom. 

Yellow - the color of those small yet sweet bananas. 

Light Green - the goodness hidden inside a ripe avocado.

Entirely hand carved in Kenya, these wide-brimmed spoons are perfect for scooping up condiments, spices, loose leaf tea, coffee beans or ground. This cold weather even calls for a heaped up spoonful of Cocoa or several scoops of bath salts for that nice relaxing soak. You may even want to share your spoon with furry friends - the spoons are excellent for scooping cat feed or bird feed! 

Displayed next to your fine China and the utensils you got from your grandma, these spoon scoops bring a color splash to your home and are bound to become a coveted part of your cutlery repertoire and a conversation starter for your next dinner party. 

We ship our Scoop Spoons in sturdy and presentable packaging boxes, making the product ideal as a gift item for your family and friends. 

We love watching cooking shows, and one thing we noticed was that chefs use and swear by wooden utensils! Plastic and silicone appear to have a major flaw - when brand new, they can be cleaned in a dishwasher or sterilized by soaking in soap or bleach. But if they become scratched, those scratches can harbor bacteria which is nearly impossible to remove! The antibacterial ability of wood comes from cellulose and naturally occurring oils. Under normal use, good wooden utensils will last for decades. Check out the Care Instructions section to learn how to care for your product. 

The Scoop Spoons are sold in a set of 3 in a matching color.

Due to the unique properties of wood, and because each product is hand crafted, the color, shape, size and grain pattern of each product may vary. We hope you’ll embrace these slight variations as part of the product’s charm.

Care Instructions

To care for, and to prolong the life of your product, we recommend hand washing with a mild detergent and warm water. Avoid soaking or using boiling water as high temperatures may cause the wood to expand and split. After cleaning, pat-dry with a towel and leave to air-dry. Every few weeks, offer some tender care and love by treating the exposed parts of the wood with a food-safe oil of your choice. To do this, simply rub in a small amount of oil with a soft cloth across the exposed wood surfaces to seal the wood grain. This will condition the wood, bring out the grain and give the products that nice and rich polished look. If you are worried that your wooden utensil might have been exposed to bacteria, rub it with juice from a fresh lime and air dry it for a week or so. Then give it a light sanding and then condition with an appropriate food-safe oil.

The products are not dishwasher safe!
